Out of all the computer innovations that remain temporarily, only to be superseded by what's 'new,' one implementation remains: the restart screen.
Burnt permanently into our retinas as an experience of both explicit annoyance and implicit pride as it becomes our one drawing connecton to our machines of old. It's something you don't quite recognise the connotations of, until you experience The Restart Page, and take a journey through the history of computer OS reset sequences.
Best enjoyed full-screen.
